Every time we visit, they are a treat we seek. Gyros— awesome. Platters- feed a crowd. And the shopkeeper in the grocery is always the sweetest to our grandchild. Great food, personable employees, reasonable prices. They have never disappointed.

The best place in the Twin Cities for excellent Middle Eastern cuisine. Superb meat dishes with a great balance between veggies and meat. Wonderful homemade sauces That taste like they were made in the Holy Land. Excellent side dishes, especially the falafel.
